  Whoever heads the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has a lot on their plate: overseeing health care reform, taming the heroin epidemic, administering Medicaid in the state. Gov. Larry Hogan tapped Van Mitchell, a former deputy health secretary, state delegate, and lobbyist to lead this sprawling agency. Van Mitchell joins Sheilah in the studio to talk about his priorities.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
